On My Mind

Sometimes random mish-mash posts can be fun, especially on a Friday, don't you think? Here are a few things on my mind these days.

I spotted these shoes when shopping with my sister-in-law in Houston and it took some strength to resist the temptation to even try them on. I think they're perfect, but I don't need anything new right now. Maybe I'll watch for when they go on sale.

I've been getting really into the look of Turkish Kilim rugs lately and have learned that eBay is a great place to find them. Wouldn't this one be gorgeous on hardwood floors against white walls?

My sister-in-law (a different one, I'm blessed to have 3!) sent me this awesome video last week. I really liked it and believe its message is a powerful one. Watch it and let me know what you think.

Occasionally, I like to see what's going on at my alma mater. I stumbled on this article and I'm quite captivated by this new interdisciplinary sacred music drama about Joan of Arc that is being created and performed by several collaborating departments. It's called "I Was Born For This" and I imagine it's incredibly moving.

I can't wait to try out this studio when we're in Charlottesville!

My friend Kristyn recently re-branded her handmade jewelry shop and her new collection is stunning. I bought the Arch Earrings (pictured above) and they arrived last week. They're simple and feminine and exquisite. Do check out her shop--I think you'll be impressed.

What's been on your mind? I'd love to hear. Enjoy this middle-of-May weekend, friends!


  1. Love the shoes, and yes, they will go on sale. :) And the rug is perfect. So bright, especially for a Kilim rug. As for hot yoga.... you go girl. The heat and me never get along. But, I will say, I'm loving prenatal yoga. But, I have to admit, it's done in my cool, air conditioned home. Haha!

  2. I love the earrings, kate! Your recent trip sounded so wonderful, I would love to take a train journey down along the west coast one day. This weekend is graduation at the University of Rochester and I was asked to play the piano. For some background music before the obvious Pomp and Circ., I will be featuring one of my favorite, go-to pieces for events like this; the Price of Freedom!

  3. Isabelle, this makes my day!! It warms my heart to know you're playing my piece. You're so sweet to tell me. I hope you enjoy playing for graduation :) xxoo
